The Giallorossi have no hope of snagging a ticket to the Champions League and the Europa League.

However, they must consolidate their 7th place, qualifying for the Europa League Conference 2 points ahead of 8th.

Last weekend, Armenian international Mkhitaryan found the net again. He has scored 3 times in the last 3 days.

Spezia vs AS Roma Prediction

One area in which Spezia have proven incredibly consistent recently is in their involvement in top-flight home fixtures containing over 2.5 goals, with this being the case in 19 of their last 20 matches. This has also been the case in 17 of the previous 20 AS Roma away games at this level, including in a 2 gols draw last month.
